There's no reason the many 125 cc-class bikes we've marketed in ASEAN countries and other parts of Asia can't be the perfect commuters in other regional markets, given their exceptional fuel performance, space efficiency, and maneuverability.
In Japan, we've made use of these globally-made models to augment our lineup by introducing the LEAD125, Sh mode, CBR 125R, Gr om, Cross Cub, Zoomer-X, and various other models.
In April 2013, we released the Dream Neo, the most affordable and most fuel-efficient Honda motorcycle released in India to date. The Dream Neo is powered by a new air-cooled four-stroke 110-cc engine that delivers the highest output and torque among Honda motorcycles in the equivalent class. And with a fuel economy of 74 km/liter, it's also the most fuel-efficient Honda bike marketed in India.
SupraX 125 FI
Mega Pro FI
Since issuing the All-FI Declaration, a pledge to install our fuel-saving PGM-FI electronic fuel injection system in all motorcycles produced in Indonesia by the end of 2013, we have gradually expanded our lineup of models with PGM-FI.
In fiscal 2014, with the release of such models as the Supra X 125 FI and Mega Pro FI, we reached our target of 100% adoption of PGM-FI in all models produced.
Dunk, the first 50-cc class Honda scooter in 12 years
Newlydeveloped eSP, a water-cooled, four-stroke overhead cam, single-cylinder 50-cc engine
In February 2014, we released the Dunk, our first new 50 ccclass scooter in 12 years.
The Dunk is based on a "premium sneakers" concept that seeks to provide riders with the joy of an elegant ride that's also easy to use.
The model offers a new standard in scooter riding that adds an extra level of fun to daily activities for a wide demographic, including young adults.
To give it the power and environmental performance befitting a new standard scooter, we equipped the Dunk with a newly developed eSP engine featuring extensive low-friction technologies—the first time in a 50 cc-class scooter. This resulting fuel economy of 56.6 km/liter (when tested using the Worldwide-harmonized Motorcycle Test Cycle2) is 10% higher than existing bikes in the equivalent class, while also boosting output by 18% and torque by 11%, also compared to bikes in the same class.
